Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play which, as it were, takes place in the wings of Hamlet, and finds both humour and poignancy in the situation of the ill-fated attendant lords. The National Theatre production in April 1967 made Tom Stoppard's reputation virtually overnight. Its wit, stagecraft and verbal verve remain as exhilarating as they were then and the play has become a contemporary classic. 'One of the most original and engaging of post-war plays.' Daily Telegraph

Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eve view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. Tom Stoppard was catapulted into the front ranks of modem playwrights overnight when Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead opened in London in 1967. Its subsequent run in New York brought it the same enthusiastic acclaim, and the play has since been performed numerous times in the major theatrical centers of the world. It has won top honors for play and playwright in a poll of London Theater critics, and in its printed form it was chosen one of the “Notable Books of 1967” by the American Library Association.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Mannheim (Lehrstuhl Anglistik II), course: Classics of 20th Century British Drama, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Analysis of Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead from post-modern metadramatic perspective., abstract: The play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead in its present form is the result of several drafts and older versions of this play, which Tom Stoppard wrote and staged. The first one was Rosencrantz and Guildenstern meet King Lear and was performed by amateur actors at a Ford Foundation cultural picnic in Berlin, in 1964. In this form the play was a one-act comedy in verse.1 In the following years the title changed and Stoppard rewrote the play into prose. At the Edinburgh Festival in 1966 the play had its break through and soon later its script was bought and produced by the National Theatre at the Old Vic. According to the Sunday Times it was "the most important event in the British professional theatre of the last nine years."2 The reason for the enthusiastic reactions towards the play is the fact that it illustrates the confusion of mankind in the post-modern world. Today's pluralism leaves the individual all to himself. The unity, which used to be created by religion, class or moral values, has been split up in favour of countless parallel existing societies with their own moral ideals and goals. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is a comical depiction of two friends looking for an orientation in a world, which to them has lost its orders and values. By using Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who are the two courtiers from Elsinore, from Shakespeare's Hamlet, Stoppard shows an unknown perspective of Hamlet. It is the one of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Without knowing the entire plot they experience the action from their point of view and constantly try to find explanations of

Tom Stoppers's play "Jumpers" is both a high-spirited comedy and a serious attempt to debate the existence of a moral absolute, of metaphysical reality, of God. Michael Billington in "The Guardian" described the play succinctly: "The new Radical Liberal Party has made the ex-Minister of Agriculture Archbishop of Cantebury, British astronauts are scrapping with each other on the moon, and spritely academics steal about London by night indulging in murderous gymnastics: this is the kind of manic, futuristic, topsy-turvy world in which Stoppard's dazzling new play is set. And if I add that the influences apparently include Wittgenstein, Magritte, the Goons, Robert Dhery, Joe Orton, and The Avengers, you will have some idea of the heady brew Stoppard has here concocted." The protagonist incude an aging Professor Of Moral Philosophy -- trying to compose a lecture on "Man -- Good, Bad or Indifferent" -- while ignoring a corpse in the next room; his beautiful young wife, an ex-musical comedy Queen, lasciviously entertaining his university boss down the hall; her husband's specially trained hare, Thumpers; and a chorus of gymnasts, Jumpers.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Commentary (plays not included). Pages: 36. Chapters: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Arcadia, Waiting for Godot, Theatre of the Absurd, Rent, Pippin, Old Times, Taledanda, No Exit, The Garden Party. Excerpt: Waiting for Godot ( -oh) is an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett, in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for someone named Godot to arrive. Godot's absence, as well as numerous other aspects of the play, have led to many different interpretations since the play's premiere. It was voted "the most significant English language play of the 20th century." Waiting for Godot is Beckett's translation of his own original French version, En attendant Godot, and is subtitled (in English only) "a tragicomedy in two acts." The original French text was composed between 9 October 1948 and 29 January 1949. The premi re was on 5 January 1953 in the Th tre de Babylone, Paris. The production was directed by Roger Blin, who also played the role of Pozzo. Waiting for Godot follows two days in the lives of a pair of men who divert themselves while they wait expectantly and in vain for someone named Godot to arrive. They claim him as an acquaintance but in fact hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognise him were they to see him. To occupy themselves, they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide - anything "to hold the terrible silence at bay." The play opens with the character Estragon struggling to remove his boot from his foot. Estragon eventually gives up, muttering, "Nothing to be done." His friend Vladimir takes up the thought and muses on it, the implication being that nothing is a thing that has to be done and this pair is going to have to spend the rest of the play doing it. When Estragon finally succeeds in removing his boot, he looks and...

"Travesties" was born out of Stoppard's noting that in 1917 three of the twentieth century's most crucial revolutionaries -- James Joyce, the Dadaist founder Tristan Tzara, and Lenin – were all living in Zurich. Also living in Zurich at this time was a British consula official called Henry Carr, a man acquainted with Joyce through the theater and later through a lawsuit concerning a pair of trousers. Taking Carr as his core, Stoppard spins this historical coincidence into a masterful and riotously funny play, a speculative portrait of what could have been the meeting of these profoundly influential men in a germinal Europe as seen through the lucid, lurid, faulty, and wholly riveting memory of an aging Henry Carr.

In this thesis, I examine Tom Stoppard's rewriting of Shakespeare's Hamlet in th e twentieth century especially through his 1966 Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are D ead. My aim throughout this thesis is to trace Stoppard's rewriting of Shakespea re between 1966 and 1999, and more specifically by focusing on Stoppard's rewrit ing of his own rewriting of Shakespeare when he adapts his play to film. I argue that Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead precedes many of the theories of postm odernism that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s. I highlight language games as a pa rticularly postmodern strategy and a form of "play" in Rosencrantz & Guildenster n are Dead. Moreover, the thesis emphasizes Stoppard's innovative theater in his borrowing and altering techniques and themes from the theaters of Pirandello, B recht, Beckett and others. The first chapter introduces rewriting in the twentieth century, distinguishing between modernist and postmodernist rewritings of classical and canonical texts. The chapter contextualizes Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead in the tradition of twentieth-century modern rewritings of Hamlet. In the second chapter, I probe Stoppard's cultural, linguistic and thematic rewr iting of Hamlet in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead by attempting to show how the play precedes the theories of postmodernism of Jean-Francois Lyotard, Jean Baudrillard, Frederic Jameson and others. Furthermore, I differentiate between m odernist and postmodernist re/writing by contrasting Stoppard's postmodern aesth etics in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead to the late modernist ones used b y Beckett in Waiting for Godot; I particularly stress the differences between bo th plays' attitudes toward tradition and "grand narratives." The third chapter presents Stoppard's protean quality through the diversity of s tyles and the variety of media that he uses in re/writing plays. The chapter tra ces Stoppard's other postmodern rewritings of Hamlet in his 1979 Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth, and most importantly in his rewriting of his own rewriting of Hamlet in the film of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead in 1990. I also compar e Heiner Muller's postmodern rewriting of Hamlet in The Hamletmachine to Rosencr antz & Guildenstern are Dead. Finally, I analyze Stoppard's interrogation of the figure of Shakespeare in the ...
